José Carreras triumphs in the opera “El Juez” in Vienna!

José Carreras celebrated a “triumphant return to the opera stage” in Austrian composer Christian Kolonovits’ opera “El Juez“  (The Judge). The dramatic story of the lost children in the Franco era in Spain. After acclaimed performances in Bilbao and at the Festival Erl as well as at the Mariinsky II in St. Petersburg, startenor José Carreras portrayed this fantastic character, the judge,  at the prestigious “Theater an der Wien” in Vienna with absolute great success!

 

“El Juez“: a few press commentaries

“José Carreras still has it at 67!  After an 8 year absence, the star tenor’s return to the opera stage was met with standing ovations, rapturous applause and loud cries of “bravo”… a dream comeback!“
Die Zeit

“…it was not only an acclaimed comeback, it was a triumph…”,
ORF 2 , Kulturmontag

“…with just a few gestures, Carreras makes the character of the wavering judge believable. His stage presence is evident and he still possesses the parlando and diction associated with the greatest singers…”
Süddeutsche Zeitung

“…even José Carreras’ biggest fans were sceptical when the tenor’s new opera plans were first revealed.   However, once you have experienced “El Juez” at Festspielhaus Erl for yourself, you will soon feel ashamed of your initial scepticism and will extend your sincerest thanks to the composer, Christian Kolonovits, his librettist, Angelika Messner and the initiator Carreras for a truly wonderful evening!…”
